This is by far the worst school I have seen. The way some of the teacher communicate with the kids is very unprofessional. There are significant amount of problems that when brought up to teachers or the principle, nothing is done. There are a large amount of bullies in this school also, and when someone stands up to them they are the ones that get in trouble.
I am a floored by the number of positive reviews this school has received: I am thinking this website may not be an accurate gauge of the quality of the schools it lists. Grapevine is a horrible school. My sons were lucky enough to get one really good teacher there: but even then, the academics and curriculum is a joke. Budget cuts are made in ways to hurt students the most. High performing students are held back from learning for the slowest of the group. The school does not provide a safe environment. Bullies and rude obnoxious students walk all over teachers and students alike. The school DOES provide the academic tools a child needs to perform well at the next level of education.
i love this school every time i come they always greet people all the teachers are nice
All my grandkids have gone here and over the years everyone has always been so polite and kind to all the parents and family.
because they have Good Teachers That Will Take The Time To Make Sure The Student Undersatnds The Concepts, Very Safe School and Very Informative.
My child learns a lot in this school- like math, reading, science, social studies, and writing. The teachers are very friendly and helpful.
I love this school. The teachers really care about all of their students. The staff members are all NICE, active, involved and want to help every child, from the office to the teachers. Positive place to be, and my son is very happy to go to school everyday.
The teachers as well as the principal take their job seriously and I really like how they treat the students. I really like that the principal is outside every morning welcoming students, parent, and staff.
I really like the way they teach. I also like how they treat parents and students. we really get to meet the principal personally. She's always outside greeting parents and students
The principal and staff are always encouraging the kids to do better.
Grapevine has teh best teachers in Vista! They are caring, hard working, professionals with the passion to reach every student! The afterschool program there is amazing as well!
Grapevine is a great community dedicated to helping all students be successful in school and in life! :)
Grapevine Elementary, has the most professional staff I have encountered in the san diego school system. Even with the budget crisis in the district, they are still teaching to quality standards. They are a mostly bi-lingual campus. They have acheived the necessary involvment in each student to enrich their academia. I also have been imopressed in the surounding community in the pouring in of needed materials and enrichment programs, that the staf puts their feet to the pavement to find.
This school has great teachers and staff members. It has a wonderful afterschool program that offers homework help, tutoring, PE and computer lab time, all for free. They have a lot of technology and my child goes to the computer lab everyday. The teachers really care and go above and beyond the call of duty. The school is old, needs more grass and a facelift. But, once you meet the people there and see the kind of education these kids are getting, you get over it. This school has children who deal with a lot more than needing an education. Many parents are uneducated, poor or even in jail. There are very few parents on campus to help out, and I wish there were more. I would choose this school over the newer ones with better test scores anyday.
grapevine elementry school is a wonderful school for my child. it is in vista, California and my child loves it. the principal, teachers, food, and everything in between is great. my child is in 5th grade and she will not be there next year but my baby is 2 and she will go there in a few years. hopefully it becomes a better school in years to come. Thank you for teaching my child since kindergarten and I hope to see this school still there when my child is in high school or college.
